I remember reading somewhere that when Janice died, Marty Balin's (of JA fame) world just fell out from under him, and he was forced to examine the whole 'scene' that he found himself living in. I confess to not having listened to much of Janice in my life, but not for any reason that i don't like her style of singing, but more that it just didn't happen for reasons i have no idea. Would love to hear more.

If you haven't seen it yet, get hold of the "Festival Express" dvd! It's the film of the train ride across Canada in 69-70 w/ Grateful Dead, Janice, the Band , Buddy Guy and many others. The trip inspired Hunters "Might As Well", and there is a lot of very cool, and funny up close and bustable, I mean personal too. Lot's of good music as well!!!

VERY cool document of the times! One of the very few times Garcia was known to be DRUNK! The late night bar car scen/jam is a riot!!! Legends just being themselves, among their peers, and having a ton of FUN!!! I might have to play it right now... It should be readily avaible for 15-20 bucks... money well spent! :))

Oh YEAH! Incredible stuff! A wasted crew being led by Rick Danko on " Aint no More Cane on the Brazos" and you get to see not only vintage Dead but the Band and Janis at some of their best. Also, check out Buddy Guy! Can't say enough about this DVD, ALL serious Dead fans as well as all pop/rock whatever you want to call it fans should see this. I also love Bob AND Jerry's take on the protesters. Weir was right on and Jerry was obviously annoyed but dealt with those pinheads just to shut them up.

Hey Johnny-how 'bout that Chicago electric bluesman Buddy Guy?!?

Sorry, bro-it was just too easy.

That's funny because I thought about that too - although the live clip they use of Buddy Guy in that movie has him playing a RHYTHM and Blues tune ( Money ) not a Chicago blues style song. I like R & B.

I could see those nice Canadian hippies protesting the ticket price if it were actually American dollars . . . .

I can't see their point.I bet some of these jerks bitched about the FREE show they got. There's always going to be someone who does NOTHING with their life who expects someone who DOES do something with their life to owe them something. And then to take it to the next level and throw rocks at peoples heads because an artist didn't entertain them for free? Pathetic in my opinion.

Okay, seems i should be seeking this out rather sooner than later, as you've got me all worked up into a lather with expectation. Please forward me your home addresses so i can send the 'boys' (or Direwolf) around should those expectations fail to satisfy.

Yo man, if i interpret you correctly (not always the easiest thing to do), a huge thanks! Got lots to send your way if you're lookin' for something. Whatever you want, i'll send. Hell, i'll even keep wolfboy on his leash; throw him a steak or two and he's about as malleable as they come.

You've got my e-mail? ... e-mail me mr. cushling

You won't be disappointed. The most intimate footage of Jerry we'll probably ever see. And the rest is great too.I'm not a huge Janis fan myself but she doesn't disappoint ( understatement ).

"I Need A Man To Love" - CHEAP THRILLS (great track, and it hasn't been overplayed on classic rock FM)

& start with Cheap Thrill's "Combination of the Two" - for the great Bill Graham introduction... "...and one great, great broad..." and the song crackles with energy... tells the audience how cool they are for rockin' at the ballrooms...


"Tell Mama" - Festival Express (DVD or broadcast on FLIX) Play LOUD!
And watch out for Jerry's 3rd wheeling love confession to Pearl, lol.


Big Brother & Janis- Cheaper Thrills, Live at Winterland 1968 CD

Remix, get the REMIX of the debut Big Brother & the Holding Company LP (on CD)
The original mix was weak as water, though we loved it anyway.

Monterey Pop (expanded edition has more of this essential archive featuring the truly knock-out star-making JANIS performance.

Pigpen color photo poster (formerly common at head shoppes) with Pigman cupping Janis' right breast!

The '66 naked/ beaded lady pix of Janis.
(see attchment I've included here)

The Family Dog Avalon Ballroom Rick GRIFFIN poster of Janis with Big Brother.
Garbed out in 1890's chic, great image. They really HAD an image, even more than the Airplane or dare I say it .....

Quicksilver Messenger Service (and friends).

The LOOK mag from 1967 that had great photos ogf the Beatles by Avedon and also the whole SF Rock-Biker scene.
Including Janis in great pose with BB.

Neon Rose Matrix poster by MOSCOSO of Janis in another cool retro family shot of Janis with with BB.

Janis really was the feather in the cap of the whole hippie folk scene.

It kinda began the 1st big though quietly meloncholic end of the beginning even more than Altamont or anything up to then, when suddenly at the peak of her powers as a talented musician with hand-picked back-up musicians, she kicked the bucket.

Love her laugh. Can you just hear her laughing softly, sardonically, even now, in the back of your mind? At the back of your hind ;-?

Like Pig himself, Janis was one of THEE nicest warmest most unpretentious peacocks of the hip trip.

Honey, get it while ya can.
